The health ministry has raised the number of fatalities due to Covid-19 by 10 to 587, after verifying the data reported by the epidemiological surveillance unit previously.

The additional deaths concern seven men and three women between the ages of 60 and 86.

Two of them go as far back as December 2020 — an 84-year-old man who died at Famagusta general hospital – and a 73-year-old man who died in the Nicosia general hospital ICU.

Another unreported death concerned a man, 86, who died in February this year at Limassol hospital.

There was also a 60-year-old who died in May, also at Limassol hospital, and a man and a woman, 67 and 71 respectively, who died in July at Nicosia general. A 73-year-old woman also died in July in Limassol.

The ministry said a man, 75, died in August at Limassol hospital, and two more, a woman, 70, and a 61-year-old man, who also died in Limassol in October.

Including the new data, Covid has claimed the lives of 376 men and 211 women since the outbreak of the pandemic in Cyprus in March 2020. The average age was 76.
